GREATER NEW HAVEN COMMUNITY CHORUS INC
January 30, 2011
I have been involved with the Greater New Haven Community Chorus since 1983 when the artistic director was Ron Konetchy. While not a professional singer, nor do I have any musical training, throughout the years, the GNCC has taught me a lot about music in general; how to sing; and has helped me realize the dream of singing for my community. the most outstanding aspect of the chorus is how it "builds community one note at a time." We live to that motto. People come in from all walks of life; once per week we get together, we meet and learn about each other, and we make beautiful music togehter. It is three hours of beautiful choral sound. Another wonderful aspect of the GNHCC is its community outreach. The Chorus reaches out to community organizations, the elderly, the schools and colleges, and identifies venues where we bring our music for all to enjoy at no cost. We provide opportunities for youth and students to sing with us and to grow musically. The Greater New Haven Community is better off as result of the Greater New Haven Community Chorus.....We love to sing and bring people together!
